Plasmid Information

Product OverviewOur pUAST vector system is a good and efficient transgenic Drosophila production and gene expression control system. The system is derived from the commonly used Drosophila P-element transposon, combined with the strongly inducible promoter Gal4 to regulate transgene expression.
The complete pUAST system consists of two vectors, one vector is called pUAST plasmid, which contains two P element terminal repeats, including the region or gene to be transposed; the other vector is called helper plasmid or transposase plasmid, encoding P transposition Seat enzyme.
When pUAST and transposase plasmids are co-transfected into target cells, the transposase produced by the helper plasmid recognizes the two P-element terminal repeats on the pUAST plasmid, and then inserts the region to be transposed and the two P-element terminal repeats into in the host genome.
